SEND Provision

Provision for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) is explained in detail in our Local Offer, SEN Report and SEND Policy.

Claycots is a mainstream school.  Claycots makes SEND provision for children who need support which is additional to or different from other children of the same age to enable them to learn.  In making provision for children with SEND, Claycots follows the advice set out in the Code of Practice 2014

Children with SEND will receive support that is tailored to their individual need, although the following support is common practice within Claycots School:

 

  • Children with Speech and Language Therapy programmes may receive direct 1:1 or small group support from a suitably trained staff member;

  • Children may receive small group support in-class from a teaching assistant;

  • Children with difficulties in specific areas (for example: reading) may receive small group support outside class from a teaching assistant;

  • Children with Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy programmes may receive 1:1 or small group support from a suitably trained staff member;

  • Children with advice from the Educational Psychologist may receive differentiated learning tasks from the class teacher;

  • Children with social, emotional or mental health difficulties may receive direct work 1:1 or in a small group from a teaching assistant or outreach worker, or 1:1 with a drama therapist.

  • Children with visual or hearing impairment may receive differentiated learning tasks from the class teacher or direct work from a specialist teacher.

  • If you have any concerns about your child or think that they may have SEND, please contact your child's class teacher or the SENCO.
